Art For Others supports splash pad

Art for Others is Barriere Elementary School’s celebration of the fine arts

During Art For Others the school’s Strings students gave a very good performance

Barriere Elementary School

Art for Others is Barriere Elementary School’s celebration of the fine arts.  This event is a community/school event, and is one of the highlights of our school year.

Prior to the event, local artisans and artists share their talent and expertise with students at our school.  They choose projects to showcase painting, clay work, etcetera. The students then work with the artist and create something to sell at Art for Others.

This year we were very fortunate to have Wayne Broomfield, Bev Anderson, Steve Rainer, Mary McLennan, Louise Dunstan, Shelley Ewashina (with help from Jim Harper Welding), Dennis Farquharson, Leanne Eustache, Daryll Laboucan, Diana Fraser and a group of parents and grandparents from the community.

The students are introduced to a variety of art forms and they learn about creating something to give away.

This year we were also fortunate to have wonderful performances from our school’s Strings students.  They did a wonderful job,  and many thanks to Ms. Fletcher and Mr. Glenn Andrews.   A number of other students played the piano, sang songs, and played instruments.  There were many crowd pleasing performances.

Art for Others is an opportunity for students to learn to give back to their community.

They also learn that it is more important to give than it is to receive.  This year our donation will be going toward the Splash Pad.

Our school would like to thank the people who came, enjoyed the entertainment, and who supported the event through their generous donations.

We will be donating $1,000 to help finance the Splash Pad.

A big “thank you” to the artisans and artists for sharing their talents with our students.  The success of this event is because of your volunteering.

This event demonstrated once again how living in a small community creates a caring and supportive environment for families.

Thanks again for supporting our school and community.
